DELIVERY DRONES

Drone Delivery

 

Delivery drones are already in full effect for companies like Amazon and UPS but what about delivery drones as your postal service? At first, drones were like seeing a UFO, now it’s a bit more normal.

The Swiss Post has begun testing drone deliveries to better deal with mountainous geography in Switzerland, emergency situations and the transportation of specialized items like medical supplies. Matternet, a California-based company supplied the drones for the delivery tests. Matternet’s ONE drones can currently carry one kilogram loads over 10 kilometers in a single battery charge.

For a larger scale delivery, load bearing capabilities need to be much higher. The Swiss Post thinks it will be another 5 years before the widespread use of drones.
